X-Box info please

I have an X-Box 360 with an attached hard drive on it and all I use it for is for some basic games.

I'm not interested in or use any kind of live crap or online services from it.

So having said that, what are my options for a new model?...are the games backward compatable?
Do you have to use this Kinect thing?...I really don't want it.

I'd stick with the 360 unless there's something specific you need that it doesn't do. Also I never in 300 years expected to see this question from you

The games are not backwards compatible with the Xbox one... Some of them if you put the 360 disc in the One it can download an Xbox one version but that's not universal.

My xbox one doesn't have Kinect. I get along perfectly without it

Im sure someone better versed in these things can fill in everything I left out

At your age, I think you should be shopping for some dominoes or something?

I do want to stick with the 360...I farm game integration out

Reason I was asking is I want to put one in the Bird .

Don't know if an Xbox One will be worth a damn in the bird away from Internet access. Mine seems to want to update incessantly.

That is just it...I don't want the thing connecting to the internet period...can the updating crap be disabled?

Maybe I will just say screw it, find some lawn darts and play that...in the dark...after beers....

The updating cannot be avoided to my knowledge but as I said I'm not an expert.

Either way I think the lawn darts are a good idea

I think I heard the PS4 was able to operate offline whereas the Xbox was more reliant on being connected to the net.

I don't own anything newer than a PS2 though so it's just what I read, not experience.
